I'm finding the evening slot a much more relaxed one than the old Thursday afternoon show - there seems to be much less pressure because mine is the last live show of the day. Mind you, the next few weeks are going to be pretty busy for me as Silvia Nicolatto arrives in the country next weekend and there will be some serious rehearsals, followed by a series of gigs and two days in the recording studio. Nevertheless, I hope to bring you some interesting shows during that period. Here are the details of last Wednesday's show.
